Pub names

What would you call a pub if you owned one?

I'd probably call mine 'The Bear and Pickle' as a nod to my daughters' nicknames, but would be tempted by a "Fanny on the Hill" type double entendre name.

  • I've long thought a good name for a pub at the football ground would be "The Goalkeeper's Arms"
  • Caught Knott bowled Underwood.
  • they missed a trick at Pratts Bottom. there's a pub there called the bull's head yet down the road in anther village they got a pub called the cock inn. should of been the Cock Inn Pratts Bottom.

    Something like "The Tug & Pullet". With a picture of a small steam boat and a young hen on the sign, naturally...
    Yes, exactly!

    Subtle but effective.

    It'll never catch on.
  • The Fisters Arms
  • The Dog & Duck Tape
  • The Miller’s Arms
  • Think it’s already been done but ‘the gym’ would be an ideal local for me.
    At least when I tell the doctor I visit the gym 4 times a week I won’t be lying.
  • Anywhere near SE7 and it would have to be The Valley. Actually, anywhere at all except near the Scum or the Nigels.
  • Pig and Peacock

    Went to Maryon Wilson Park and there was a peacock, happy as Larry, standing on the back of a pig, whilst he was eating from a trough.

    Made me realise how the two animals are completely different from eachother in every way, and yet socialised in the same place, just like guests at a pub.

    Pork dominated food menu, pork scratchings and peacock feathers in vases on every table.

    Not sure how old you are but there was a pub called The Valley up near the village......it was built in the 60’s I believe.
    I’m going to guess it closed down about 20 years ago......the landlord was a well known ex-player who, by all accounts, was a right miserable bastard.
  • The Imminent.

    Just need a suitably named town in Kent to open it in...

    The Done Deal.

    In similar vein, a pub called "In Moderation".

    Where did that name come from, is it a golfing term?
  • Alcoholic's Anonymous, to get em through the door then, once they're in, clean up.... Robert's you dad brother
  • The Pursuit of Hoppiness, Bridport has a fantastic name and is an early contender for Stig's Pub of the Year.
